It's about the struggle I went through a few months ago.

Two Headed Butterfly

A two headed butterfly
cannot fly both ways
it could flutter and flutter
and attempt this for days
Though both sides may pull
and both sides may scream
to fly free in both directions
remains only a dream.
One side reaches for sunlight
while the other reaches for night
neither can agree
just which side is right.
While night offers solice
and shelter from the storm,
a charming sensation
and a feeling so warm,
the daytime brings warmth
and cool gentile breezes,
and a big patch of shade
that soothes as it eases.
But night can be sinister
and full of deceit,
looking to hurt you,
to knock you off your feet,
but the day is no better
with those flames that burn flesh,
it'll dry you and cook you
and serve you up fresh.
What then does it choose,
this two headed butterfly?
Does one side give up
and live out a lie?
Can both heads agree
and choose one side that's right?
Or would they continue to struggle,
to continuously fight?
Why won't they give up
and just choose a new side?
A side they can agree on
so both heads may glide...
Things would be simpler,
and their wings would hurt less,
that could be what they need
to change this life...
This mess....

   very well writtin James, some married couples are like that, two souls joined together, yet each trying to go their own way.

  I think the best thing to do would be to compromise, find inner strength to be at peace with yourself and when you think about it long or hard enough, that's really the only way to end the internal drama.

Built up by everything that has happen to you that was not your fault plus more.
I saw a side of rage but also a side of beauty that fights the rage because the genuine side does not want things bad.

It went upward, the longer I read along the more it got interesting as if the writer was questioning themselves, looking deeply into themselves on the level of longing to destroy but rebuild for what is best.

I think one of the questions would be is that are these sides a part of me so much that I cannot erase them but there is a way I can keep them separate in loving oneself with accepting what has happened on such a winding road of life.

Pain inside but longing to change.There can really only be one head, if there will always be two then there is always the option of 'mess', as of do I go this way or that way.Though we all have choices of who we want to be and why, this is like reading a maturity process with hurt, day breaks or periods etc.

Sun rays are more powerful to your soul than moon beam, that the soul will need sunlight more so than night time desire of anything having to do with it because it'll be more tempted to slip into darkness.
I just thought about that kind of quickly after reading.

You fight the mess by keeping your mind and heart focused on pleasant things that can benefit you inside and out more than lingering on the hurts forever until your healed as time goes on.
As life goes on..And life can be sad..

The butterfly searches to find it's way.
I don't know if I'm exactly sure about everything here but I do get it to a degree.

Expressed honestly though, as usual.
